Environmental Acoustics

  • Noise Impact Assessment (NIA)

    • Understanding local noise regulations and directives is crucial when preparing NIAs. First our firm makes sure we know and understand the local noise ordinances that apply to a specific NIA. Then sound propagation modelling and analysis of facility noise on the surrounding area is carried out with respect to these local regulations and directives. Finally, reports clearly explaining the impact to the client, regulatory bodies and other stakeholders are issued.
  • Sound Propagation Modelling

    • The firm offers software modelling of simple or complex noise sources to distant receivers. Modelling includes the effects of directivity of the noise sources, barriers (man-made or natural), wind, inversions, terrain, distance, and orientation of the receivers from the noise source.
  • Noise Control Design

    • Octave and 1/3 octave frequency analysis of problem noise sources along with acoustic modelling allows the firm to design noise control measures to mitigate sound problems. Solutions are practical and based on commercially available noise control products or custom designed products where warranted.
  • Noise Monitoring

    • Long and short term noise monitoring. State of the art noise measuring instrumentation with continuous audio recording of noise monitoring sessions to identify the nature of the noise environment from both the natural noise environment as well as the noise of concern.
